Preheat the Cuisinart™ Griddler in the closed grill position on 375°F. Lightly brush one side of each slice of bread with the olive oil. Lay 4 slices of bread on the work surface oiled side down. Spread lightly with mustard. Build the sandwiches in this order -cheese, smoked turkey, tomato - using equal amounts of each item on each sandwich. Top with the remaining sliced bread, oiled side up. Lay two sandwiches on the bottom grill plate of the preheated Griddler™ evenly spaced. Close Griddler™ and apply light pressure to handle for about 30 seconds. Grill panini for 3 to 3-½ minutes. Remove to a rack and keep warm (an oven preheated to 175°F). Grill remaining 2 sandwiches in the same way. Cut in half on the diagonal to serve.
